Russia developing 'carrier killer' submarines

Sunday, July 12, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - The Russian Navy is investing in two new submarines, one of which is being described by the head of Russia’s state-owned shipbuilding corporation as a "carrier killer," according to the independent Moscow Times.

The second boat would be designed to protect Russian ballistic submarines from enemy attack.

The announcement continues an active period in Russian submarine development. Following the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union, the Russian Navy, like the country’s other military services, went into decline as resources were stripped away by a collapsing economy, poor morale, and inept leadership.

  1. Interesting~!

    {{{ Norman Friedman, an American naval analyst is skeptical in an interview quoted in Defense News:

    I would be skeptical.There’s a history in that country of laying down things that don’t get finished for a long time. No question they’ll lay down the subs, but actually building them after that is a more interesting question. (…) I get the feeling for all the big talk from the Russians about building a new fleet, they’re probably having trouble getting stuff (…). http://thediplomat.com/2015/07/russia-to-develop-aircraft-carrier-killer-sub/ }}}
